Background

Pandora was a Paris-based film company and a subsidiary of Gaylord Entertainment since 1999. A year later, the new company Gaylord Films was started, entering a co-financing venture with Warner Bros. Their logos were used together during the lifespan.


(2002)

Logo:: On a starfield, the name "GAYLORD FILMS" fades in, with "Y" shaped with the extended leg.

Variants: On some trailers for the movie, as well as the trailer for What a Girl Wants, the logo is on a blue background. On the actual feature, the logo is placed on a wall on a house, and has a shadow and the text in white.

FX/SFX: Nothing but the fade in.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Very rare, appears on the trailer for Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

Scare Factor: None to minimal.


(????-2000s)

Logo: We see the words "pandora" in chrome letterng.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the trailer.

Availability: Appears on some trailers, such as Welcome to Collinwood.

Scare Factor: None. 

(2000s-2002)

Logo: We see some blue slashes (the second is orange) zooms out from the left as the BG slowly turns from full-black into half black-blue.As this happen,the word "pandora" slowly slides from left where the slashes arrived.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor:The zoom outs (which is very choppy),and the sliding.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie or a TBA.

Availability:Seen on A Walk To Remember and Donnie Darko. However, newer prints of the latter has the next logo.

Scare Factor: None.


(2002-2005)

Nicknames: "The Key", "Gaylord Key", "Pandora Key" 

Logo: We see a key falling from an orange sky. It lands in a hand (by this point the sky is blue), which uses the key to unlock a door. It opens and light comes out, which overtakes the screen. It turns into a keyhole shape, with either one of these texts fading in below: 

  • "PANDORA", then the byline "a gaylord films company" in spaced-out letters to fit the width of "PANDORA", fades in soon after.
  • "GAYLORD" followed by "FILMS" in a smaller font fading in soon after.

Variant: Sometimes (Like in new prints of Donnie Darko), the light scene is only seen.

FX/SFX: Seems to be a mix of live-action and CGI. Oddly evocative of the Phoenix Pictures logo.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie or a beautiful synth choir tune.

Availability: The Pandora version is scarce and appears on White OleanderGrindCypher, and Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie. The Gaylord version is very common and is seen on What a Girl WantsDuma, and Welcome to Collinwood. Other appearances are unknown at this time. The logo strangely appears on the trailer for A Cinderella Story, but the logo was not shown on the actual feature.

Scare Factor: None to minimal.
